World Password Day falls on the first Thursday of every May. Created by Intel in 2013, it is a day for raising awareness about the role strong passwords play in securing our digital environment.

From bank accounts to social media profiles, nearly every online application requires a password. Check out our tips below to help ensure your passwords are strong enough to secure your information.

  • Use a different password for each of your accounts.
  • Create passphrases instead of short letter/number combinations. 
  • Aim for 12 characters or more. 
  • Incorporate capitalization, numbers, and symbols. 
  • Avoid using personal information like birthdates, pet names, etc. 
  • Consider using a password manager like Bitwarden to quickly log in to your accounts while keeping your passwords protected. 
  • Add an extra layer of security with multi-factor authentication (MFA).

Additionally, consider staying ahead of potential cyber threats with Red Sentry subscriptions.
